December 7, 1941. A day that President Franklin D. Roosevelt famously described as “a date which will live in infamy.”

A day that America lost more than 2,400 service members and civilians also gave way to 51 Navy Cross and 15 Medal of Honor recipients, who, in the face of grave and unsuspecting danger, committed acts of heroism that will forever be recognized by our great nation.

It is important today that we not only mourn the deaths and honor those lives lost at Pearl Harbor U.S. Naval base, but that we also have an appropriate appreciation for the scope of lives lost in battle over our nation’s history.

From then, the greatest generation went on to defeat evil during the second World War. Those who survived came home to rebuild what the United States had lost during the span of war, continue serving to protect our freedoms, and pay homage to those lost during it.

And while we honor them with observances and tributes, it is also appropriate that we remember those among us here and throughout the country for whom the loss of each of these men and women is so personally felt – the Gold Star families of all generations to whom each of the fallen was a husband or wife, mother or father, sister or brother, daughter or son.

Our nation owes a debt to its fallen heroes that we can never fully repay. It is our responsibility, our duty, and even our privilege to honor their sacrifice. We must honor them in our own lives by keeping them and their memories close to our hearts and allowing their character and selflessness to guide our own sense of patriotism and duty to own fellow Americans.

As a nation, we must honor them by keeping the sacred trust with all the men and women who have served in uniform and are currently serving now, as well as their families; by never giving up the search for those who still haven’t returned home, and by keeping the spirit of this day with us every day, all year around.
